Devin Bush has all the tools to be a great NFL linebacker, but his lack of size may ultimately drop him into round two. Still, thanks to the current era of NFL offense, Bush may be entering the league at exactly the right time to be an immediate difference-maker.
Elgton Jenkins has been a mostly under-the-radar mid-round interior line prospect. However, thanks to an excellent week at the Senior Bowl, some have Jenkins climbing as high as round two. With his good size, athleticism and intelligence, it is easy to see why.
With the 2018 NFL season officially over, the league now shifts to reshaping rosters.If the Minnesota Vikings expect to be the team to unseat the Patriots in Super Bowl LIV, these are key steps they will have to take. Here is my plan as...
In a 16-game season, it may seem unreasonable to whittle down a team's essence to five games. However, each game represents a piece of an over-arching story, and each piece spells out a pattern that leads to the final product. The Vikings were the ultimate roller coaster of NFL teams this year. The highs were high, the lows impossibly low. These five games represented what made the 2018 Vikings the disappointment they ultimately proved to be.
Prior to 2018 training camp, Full Press Vikings released two prediction pieces called "What Will Go Right" and "What Will Go Wrong." Now that the 2018 season is officially in the books, let us take a look back at how those predictions fared.
The NFL Draft Combine is approaching quickly. Day one is mere weeks away, even though the end of the Vikings' season does not seem that long ago. That means draft season is upon us, and it is ripe time to begin predicting the route the Vikings take when they go on the clock.

Mediocrity is not a place Vikings fans thought they would be miring in come this time of year. Even more surprising are the calls from some sectors for the jobs of Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer.
The drafts best game action showcase provided fans with a glimpse at a myriad of talented prospects. Many players helped build their resume leading up to the draft, but these are six names that stood out at the Senior Bowl as potential future Vikings.
The Senior Bowl kicks off in one hour, and a number of prospects have used this week of practice to get their name on scout's minds. Here are a handful of the players Vikings fans should be focusing on as the best college seniors in the country square off in the largest prospect showcase of draft season.
Since 2019 draft prospects began to take shape, Dalton Risner has been the consensus Vikings fan choice for the 18th overall pick. And given his tape, it is easy to see why. Risner is a tough as nails, aggressive, efficient blocker who excels both in the run and pass game. Whether he ultimately settles at tackle or on the interior is to be determined, but whoever ends up with him will more than likely have a day one starter on their hands.
Here is the thing that may turn some off to the Vikings drafting a lineman at 18th overall: guards remain unsexy. Minnesota seems to have both tackle spots penciled in for next year, so anyone they draft this year will ideally be competing for a starting guard spot.
